What do u think about this issue?  It's a very silly issue and UPSC wont give a damn about it. The english and maths in CSAT is of 10th standard. not a CAT or GMAT standard.
It is just another "running away from competition" and "delaying the exams tactics". Same as what happens in Bihar and UP PCS usually.

@No idea about this one MM, but whatever I have read most of the complaints do tilt towards "delaying tactics".

CG- take a look over this fact- last year there were nearly 200 results from regional languages. and UPSC is just printing it in Hindi only not in south languages. this was supposed to be an added advantage to Hindi students.
This year only the result is less and i wud blame Mains exam for tat not CSAT.

@RadhaKrishnan-  when 3 years back there was an individual subject exam with GS paper, people used to give negative feedback and all discrimination with one or two subject talks. Now for equality they introduced CSAT. and some basic english is required. India is so diverse. suppose one person from Bihar is posted in Tamil Nadu, will he force them to learn Hindi? tat was why a little english was introduced. and maths and english are used for Aptitude test like CAT, GMAT etc. for Administration skills they do have mains exam and interview. Prelims is just to remove the non-serious candidates.

@MM - Heard there is dispute even in the Hindi translations. Unnecessary. I am not in favor of massive changes. Exam is suppose to test basic intent of the aspirants . With the kind of population we have like it or not ,competitive exams are the only effective ways of shortlisting the candidates.

U know tat point was supposed to be more controversial. the students wud have focussed more on this rather than scrapping of CSAT. That was real concern. the translation they do is typical google hindi translation - Laptop- written in Hindi as god soor. and tat is very hilarious as well as confusing. Rather focussing on this fact they just went for scrapping agenda. 
Gud part about UPSC is Politics can't force it much.
